Usage modes

Add slaves

When adding slaves, new names can be separated with space or be added as a number span. You can choose to create new "clean" slaves, or copy the settings from an existing slave. See picture below.

Configure slaves

The first step when configuring existing slaves is to mark which slaves to edit. This can be done by using several filters, or by just selecting slaves manually. See picture below.

The second step is to choose which settings to change by using the check boxes, edit them and apply. See picture below.

Delete slaves

Deleting slaves can be done by selecting which slaves to delete in the same way as when choosing to configure slaves.

Other features

Environment variables

If the slave name is needed as any setting, it's possible to use "$NAME" to get it expanded for each slave. For example, you could set the launch command to "launch /root/launch_slave $" on a slave called "slave1" and it would be saved as "launch /root/launch_slave".
